Level 4: Strategic Action to Overcome Racism©

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photos-multiethnic-group-people-holding-colourful-speech-bubbles-image41013713Through this course participants learn the value of their individual contribution to overcome racism and the power of collective action.

Participants apply the information that they have acquired regarding racism. Armed with such knowledge, they experience the value of building alliances across ethnic and racial lines as they connect their personal motivations and rewards to collectively working to overcome racism. Armed with the Cycle of Conditioning* as an analytic tool, participants recognize how groups are conditioned to participate in oppression as victim or oppressor and use that knowledge to strategize what it will take to overcome racism as they identify what obstacles will get in their way and brainstorm solutions for overcoming those obstacles.

Director of Diversity & Multicultural Education, St. Louis, MO What I appreciated about this Healing Our Nation course is how it unpacked the complexities of racism while equipping participants with actionable steps to “undo it.” As our group created our vision and then strategies for overcoming racism, I witnessed a renewed clarity and purpose in myself and the other participants. This program supported my personal goals and gave me new insights on how our nation must leverage the power of thinking strategically, actualizing individual initiative, and addressing the institutional barriers to producing our best solutions.

Teacher, Barrington, IL  I found the course on Strategic Planning invaluable in applying what I learned to overcome racism. The course helped me get clear not only on my long term goals but it also helped me figure out what my very first steps would be to reach my goals. I left feeling confident in taking those steps.
